Borobi Group Inclusion Educator
I am so excited to be part of the dedicated team at Springwood Community Kindergarten. I became involved when my youngest attended in 2021. I watched her as she was encouraged to build new friendships and a love of learning, with teachers nurturing her to become a strong, independent learner who was ready to start Prep.
My working life has been so diverse; from working in Film & Television industry (painting), life guarding, carving rocks for Warner Brothers theme parks, working at Bunnings and owning a painting construction company.
I see my current role not as a job, but more as a passion. I studied and started relief teacher aide work in 2018 in primary school. I enjoyed it but when I was asked to work supporting children in the Early Childhood Development Program, assisting children with complex needs, it became a true passion.
I have a wide range of personal experience with neuro-diverse and special-needs children and I have the patience and understanding necessary to help children navigate through the complexities of life.
I believe children are capable of so much at this age. And I believe by building confidence, encouraging independence and supporting their emotional well-being, we can prepare children for a smooth transition to Prep.
My hobbies include renovating, painting, gardening, and surf lifesaving. I have been involved with Broadbeach Surf Life Saving Club, starting as a nipper and now holding my bronze medallion and supporting my own children who attended nippers in the summer.
